ABSTRACT
A Syrian opposition group, recognized by the Arab League as the country's legitimate representation, opened its 1st embassy in Qatar, Reuters reported. At the embassy's opening ceremony, outgoing opposition leader Moaz Alkhatib said the global community had let Syria down by not providing more help to oust Pres. Bashar al-Assad. Alkhatib added that the only way to victory is through unity, a reference to infighting among the rebels' sects.
